MOMBASA county government may be forced to lay off more than 200 workers who were found unfit in the Mombasa county ghost workers vetting report released last week.
Sources from the office of the governor have told the Star the report, which was funded by Muslims for Human Rights and released by Earnest and Young company will be acted upon this month.
"I can't comment on this since the governor is out of the country, but hopefully it will be acted upon once he goes through it," said Esther Ingolo county communication director.
Last week Mombasa deputy governor Hezel Katana said the county will consult all partners for clarification before taking any disciplinary action against the workers.
She had said the county executive committee will sit and find an amicable solution over the report. Katana said engagements with some of the staff about their retirement benefits was ongoing before they retire.
"We did agree to see this audit done, I want to say that the commitment is there and everything will be acted upon. What we need is to understand each other," said Katana last week after receiving the report.
